The last few days when looking at a thread, there are ads covering the post, not above or to the side but directly on top so you cant read the post. Maybe it's my computer but I'm not getting that on any other sites ? 

Anyone else getting this ?

Yes , I get that as well. An add covering parts of the text.

Annoying.

Is it 1 particular type of ad? Can you take a screenshot of what you're seeing?

 

@Enzo I've added you to donating members group. I don't think anyone has donated as much as you have!

Donating members don't get ads. :)

Yep, I get all different ads over the top of the text so I can’t read the the text behind.

ive had it for a while, maybe since the software upgrade?

Hey guys,

What web browsers are you using? I'm not seeing this problem with Google Chrome on a MacBook Pro.

I'm interested in your web browser and potentially version of it also? Might be good to know if you're on iOS, Android, Macbook or PC?

If i'm signed in not a problem i don't see them at all (probably as i'm a donating member ) but if just checking out the website,  i use google chrome, these ads are all over the place.

@gav240z why not trying completely logging out of google (not sure if you can do that) and then taking a look

I use Microsoft edge. Latest version. Computer updates regularly. I get them signed in or not. I will check if they come up if I use internet explorer.

Yes donating members don't see ads (when signed in).

Don't have the issue today. It doesn't happen every time. And only the last week or so.

I actually suspect it's related to Google AdSense not so much the forum software. I noticed a similar problem with some Gumtree listings the other day.

Thanks, going to be tricky to test that, since I don't have an iOS device handy.

If this is still happening, please let me know?

 

PS: Can you guys please try clearing cache and cookies also? When I upgraded the website I had to flush the local server cache to clear all the template files. However your local browsers may still be caching the older versions of a template / files and this may also be a factor here.

Hi

As far as I know, you can only do that by clearing the history.

see the image, yes that is iPad but the iPhone is the same browser
